There can't be any exact dates for when it's safe because that depends on the (highly variable) water level in the river, which depends on rainfalls. Getting there requires taking a boat, a short rocky hike and swimming through a safe part of the river before you get to the pool itself (source: a TV show I saw). You should only do it as a guided tour, in ...

In short, no. Even the Yrjönkatu pool is a bit of a historical quirk that has probably survived largely thanks to general conservatism (it's Finland's oldest and operated very much the way it did in 1928) and patronage from Helsinki's gay district Eerikinkatu (conveniently located right next door) — no, it's not a gay club or anything, but even ...

The reason the dates vary is because high water season varies. Guides won't take people when the water levels are too high, because they have to take it too. There's a really good blog post on this which details: the steps involved getting there (boat ride, pics of the rocky walk, and the jump you need to do to get in tips on how to manage it (any girls ...

Air temperature Most of the islands are pretty similar in climate, but Wikipedia has a great chart for temperatures of Gran Canaria and Tenerife, indicating that the average high in February is around 21 degrees Celsius, the mean temperature for the day is 18 deg, and the average low is 15 deg. You can also expect 1 in 8-10 days to have rain, on average. ...

I found a website comparing different biodegradable sunblockers. The quality/price range is quite significant, so it might be worth not grabbing the first thing on the shelf but rather going for a specific product. The one that the above website gave the best rating is available on Amazon for example.

Tropical Seas produce a range of reef safe suncare products that biodegrade in oceans, lakes and rivers and are non-toxic to sealife. Its probably best to purchase online however you can always contact them here to ask if their products are available to purchase locally in Cozumel.

Right, it seems Porvoo ain't much of a beach town (unlike, say, Hanko, another Helsinki day trip destination). Here's what I found out. Immediately north of the main tourist area, there's Maari (Maren) where you can "you can dip your toes in the water" according to tourist info lady. But this is river water, and she couldn't say if it's clean enough for ...

Firstly, let's look a a Google maps view of the area: Map of Porvoo and vicinity Beaches close-by? Not walking distance, no, aside from Kokonnniemi, perhaps. But you may be able to hitch or find a local bus. In that case, you have a few options. Here's a handy list of beaches near Porvoo, as well as outdoor swimming pools and barbeque locations: ...

After our trip to Cozumel, I can report: I did not do a thorough search, but I didn't actually see an abundance of reef-safe sunscreen readily available. I looked around the shops that were near the port, and the only brand I saw there was called "Caribbean Breeze". This brand did not advertise itself as either "reef safe" or biodegradable. We did not ...

About 18 degrees Celsius, give or take: http://www.bigblueplanet.com/watersearch.jsp?Longitude=0&Latitude=0&Month=2&WaterDepth=Surface&Zoom=2 And that website seriously hurts my eyes. Somewhat more readable, but not giving historical details: http://www.sea-temperature.com/water/lanzarote/165
